Snark wins the night!

Although we were pulling for Christina Hendricks to take home the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama during the Emmys 2012, it's hard to begrudge the legendary Dame Maggie Smith any award.

So we're happy to say Maggie Smith won Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama for her work as the Dowager Countess during Downton Abbey Season 2. We're just sad she wasn't there to accept in person.

Was it the right choice, or were you hoping it was someone else's year? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
